Hi, my name is Shawn Lancaster and I am the Sales Manager at Peterson Toyota, Lexus, Scion. I was born in Tennessee and raised in Minnesota. I moved to Boise in 1988 and attended Vallivue High School. Upon graduating in 1993, I started working with companies like Gem State Alloys, V-1 Propane, Swire Coca Cola, and the like. At the age of 24, I started working for the Peterson group. My first day on the job was November 1, 1999; since that time, I've loved coming to work just as much as the day I started.
Throughout my career, I've achieved many awards such as the Master Certification through Toyota. I've also won walk around contests. I have 7 Salesman of the Year awards, 3 Shop Call of the Nation awards, and I just received my 10 Years of Service award for Peterson's!
I have a great 10-year-old boy who I enjoy spending time with. We like to do a lot of things together, especially hunting, fishing, and sports.
I am Rich Waksmonski. Since April of 1991, I've worked in the automotive industry. I spent 10 years as a Service Tech, achieving my ASE Master Technician Level. With continual tests, I keep up-to-date with industry standards and new improvements in my field, and over the past four years, I've managed to win the Toyota Excellence award.
For most of my life I lived in Northern California. It wasn't but six years ago that my family and I decided to move to Idaho. Upon the change, I began working with Peterson Toyota. I started as the Service Advisor and just a year later, I was offered a service management position. Since then, I've been promoted to Service Manager over all service at Peterson Toyota, Lexus, Scion.
My wife and I just celebrated our 15 year anniversary. We have two kids, one boy, 13 (man I feel old), and one daughter, who is 8, both are great kids. I could not be more proud of them. Most of our lives revolve around the kids, whether it's football practice or keeping up on the 2.5 acres we have in Kuna. We love water sports, camping, the beach (when we can go visit), motorcycle riding, and somehow collecting farm animals. This sounds weird, but I enjoy yard work-it's relaxing. I get to mow about one acre of lawn every weekend; good thing I have a riding mower.
I started working in the automotive arena in 1976, and it's been a wonderful career. I've been married to the most wonderful person in the world, my wife and best friend, for 29 years. Together we have raised two sons. Our oldest son is a BSU accounting graduate and now a state auditor. Our second oldest is currently studying sports medicine at U of I.
When I'm not working, my hobbies include sprint kart racing, sprint car racing, boating, and camping. Above all, one of my favorite things to do is spend time with my wife, boys, and our two beagles.
My interests include church, golf, and of course, family. I have a wonderful wife and two great daughters, 19 and 16. We also have a family dog, a Border Collie named Molly.
